    Spotting and missed period please read

    Iíve always had normal on time periods my entire life and they are always heavy at first then get lighter. Iím 34 now and for first time I didnít get my period on time but I have feeling like Iím on period expect I only seen brown blood when wiping nothing else coming out is this spotting? Iíve never had this problem before and now Iím freaking out and I definitely ainít pregnant. I have been stressed since last period and Iím worried it has to do with age to. What do you think is wrong is it serious?

    Sorry nobody has replied I know it gets quite anxious when you just need reassurance. Are you on any contraception? The Pill?

    Instant reassurance isn't good long term though. You do need to sit and rationalise things through yourself.

    Then you can come on here and have a read of similar posts and you will see it is normal.

    Hi,

    If there is no chance of pregnancy, then I would say this is probably just a bit of an 'off' period.

    I say this because I've had experience with it. Mine are usually fairly regular and heavy but there have been a couple periods which were essentially just brown spotting and very light. I too felt like I was on my period and I keep waiting for it to really 'kick in' but it didn't. I've read about this. Sometimes your uterus has a bit of a 'clean out' of the old blood. That's what the brown is - its just old blood and nothing to really worry about. If I were you I would just take this as your period. Maybe see a doctor if it keeps happening but this is likely just a one off.

    All best.

    Thanks for the advice I have been really stressed since last period that could have something to do with it right?

    Yes, it definitely could have to do with it. Stress affects periods, period (Like that lol?) The delicate balance of hormones can easily be altered with anxiety and excitement, and even time zone changes and other assorted things. For example, in times of stress the body makes adrenaline instead of progesterone, and that alone can make a big difference and cause hormone imbalance.

    Stress can definitely screw with periods. I think my stress is screwing with my period right now haha.

    Periods sometimes are a little random. They don't always work like clockwork unfortunately. As I said I have always been one for getting heavy periods, that's my 'normal'. Earlier this year I had a super light brown period. Kept waiting for it to go red and heavy but never did. I have this before and it went back to normal the next month. I wouldn't worry about it. Check it out if it keeps happening but I don't think it will. Stress really messes with how your body functions so its likely a cause of it.

    Take care.
